Birthday Boy with CI Paints

Hello CI Paint fans, and Happy Thanksgiving to those of you here in the US celebrating! 

For today's project I've made a card for an upcoming birthday, and tried some distressing with the Creative Inspirations Paint.  I colored this sweet image from CC Designs, and cut several die cuts using recycled cereal boxes with cardstock over the smaller pieces (the crown and birthday tag).  The frame is plain chipboard with the Onyx CI Paint directly painted on to it.  The coverage really looks as solid and shimmery either way.  I added some clear gloss over the crown (love the flecks of shimmer under that gloss!), and then stamped the Happy Birthday tag using the White Deliquesce embossing powder.   To add a bit of distressing I painted over the white lettering, with Onxy, and then dry brushed it off.  His cupcake is topped off with a bit of Carmel CI Paint, and I've just chalked around the edges of the cut image to finish it off.

Thanks so much for joining me today, and I'll be back soon with a new CIP project!
